Processor: NXP/Freescale i.MX6 UL / i.MX6 ULL
AXEL ULite is the brand new solution made by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent NXP/Freescale i.MX6 Ultra Lite application processor. AXEL ULite defines a new limit in low power consumption with its ARM Cortex A7 architecture and enables customers to design a new concept of Embedded IoT devices.
AXEL ULite offers great compromise between computing and power consumption, thanks to the ARM Cortex-A7 architecture. Additionally, the use of this processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where power consumption, connectivity and extremely compact form factor (67,50 mm x around 25,40 mm) are key factors. The advanced security features and the three different CPU versions available (Base, General Purpose and Security) offer a wide scenario of applications. Smarter system designs are made possible, following the trends in functionalities and interfaces of the new, state-of-the-art embedded products.

The AXEL ULite SOM product is based on the recent NXP Ultra Lite application processor.
The i.MX6UL processors feature NXP’s advanced implementation of the ARM® Cortex®-A7 MPCore, which operates at speeds up to 528MHz. These SOCs include a deep encryption and security capability, a complex and flexible boot management and an integrated power management.
AXEL ULite SOM is fully compatible with Axel Lite SOM. This enable customers to build a wide portfolio of products with very different performance, power consumption and cost budget.
The advanced security features and the three different CPU versions available (Base, General Purpose and Security) offer a wide scenario of applications. The i.MX6UL devices are able to serve a wide range of applications including:
Yes. AXEL ULite SOM Evaluation Kit includes a SOM and all necessary for the fast and easy evaluation.
The main features of this new product are:

The The i.MX6 UL family is included in the Longevity program by NXP.
DAVE Embedded Systems is committed to provide its products at least for the same period declared by the silicon vendor. DAVE Embedded Systems manages the components' obsolescence and components through a PCN program according to JEDEC standard (where possible) which may require the customer's support.
DAVE Embedded Systems' goal is to grant the production continuity to its customer including the possibility to redesign its products in order to maintain the product continuity.

AXEL ULite SOM’s processor and memory subsystem are composed by the following components:
Yes. The PCB version is copper printed on PCB itself and the serial number is printed on a white label (please see here for further information). Also, a ConfigID is used by software running on the board for the identification of the product model/hardware configuration.

Here you can find the connectors and pinout description of the AXEL ULite SOM.
AXEL ULite system-on-module (SOM for short) is powered by carrier board via VIN_SOM rail. About voltage range, three supported configurations are available: click here for more details.
Implementing correct power-up sequence for i.MX6UL processors is not a trivial task because several power rails are involved. AXEL ULite SOM simplifies this task by embedding all the needed circuitry. Here you can find a simplified block diagram of PSU/voltage monitoring circuitry.
The PSU is composed of two main blocks: 1) power management integrated circuit (PMIC NXP PF3000) 2) that completes PMIC functionalities.
The PSU generates the proper power-up sequence required by i.MX6UL processor, surrounding memories and peripherals and synchronizes the powering up of carrier board in order to prevent back power.
The typical power-up sequence is the following:
NXP iMX6UL processor implements a very flexible boot process. This versatility comes at the price of a non trivial bootstrap configuration scheme. Typical system-on-module (SOM for short) adopter does not need to deal with such a complexity. In other words, he/she expects to manage few boot configuration issues because it is assumed that most of them are "hidden" within the SOM itself. Nevertheless, there are specific applications where the system integrator needs full control of all the bootstrap configuration options, even if the design is built upon a SOM.

Here you can find a block diagram of reset scheme and voltage monitoring.
TAG recovery, though very useful (especially in development or production environment), requires dedicated hardware and software tools. AXEL ULite provides an internal connector for the JTAG interface, which, besides the debug purpose, can be used for programming and recovery operations.
For further information on how to use the JTAG interface, please contact the Technical Support Team.
The AXEL ULite SOM is designed to support the maximum available temperature range declared by the manufacturer. The customer shall define and conduct a reasonable number of tests and verification in order to qualify the DUT capabilities to manage the heat dissipation. Any heatsink, fan etc shall be defined case by case.
